    Open Letter To Calderdale Councillors & Council

    7 June 2021

    With local Councils having more powers, they also have more responsibility – and accountability.
    We urge you, our Council, to follow the independent science, rather than the government, to avoid illness and deaths especially among the younger population.

    We are ashamed that some of our businesses which are pillars of social wellbeing have been fined £1000 in the past for not complying with government guidelines.
    We demand the immediate and permanent cessation of all restrictions and plans for any future lockdown.

    We ask our Councillors and Council, to support the people and local businesses, and use all your powers and forces to secure and protect the freedom of choice, movement and going about our own business.

    We expect you to decline the government’s requests to spy on us with covid marshalls, video vans and Council officers controlling what the people, local businesses and organisations do, and support us instead.
    Freedom is the basis and precondition for happiness and health.

    Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or other physical impairment [WHO]

    “Ramping up heavy-handed enforcement of rules will do more harm than good” and: “Hiring undercover officers to spy on people is an insult to the efforts communities across the country have made to look after and protect each other during the pandemic.” []
    “Lockdown was a monumental disaster on a global scale. The cure was worse than the disease.” [Prof. Mark Woodhouse, Express]
    “Is this serious enough to warrant putting most of our population into house imprisonment, wrecking our economy for an indefinite period, destroying businesses that honest and hardworking people have taken years to build up, saddling future generations with debt, depression, stress, heart attacks, suicides and unbelievable distress inflicted on millions of people who are not especially vulnerable, and will suffer only mild symptoms or none at all?” [former Supreme Court Judge , Lord John Sumption in a BBC interviw]

    On is a thorough analysis of the virus situation with evidence that “the cure has been much worse than the disease”:

    • SARS-CoV-2 fatalities have been vastly exaggerated based on “not fit for purpose” PCR tests with high false positives and statistical manipulations like labelling fatalities within 28 days of a positive test result as “covid deaths” – regardless of the cause of death.
    • 22 scientists found 10 major flaws peer reviewing the scientific paper used as basis for the PCR test, which clearly shows the PCR test is not fit for purpose.
    • Total death numbers are in the normal range.
    • The overall herd immunity in Britain is over 70%, and the Herd Immunity Threshold HIT of 17% (point of “flattening the curve”) was reached already a year ago.
    • More than 100 studies show that “loneliness and isolation kill” – on the other hand socialising, human contact and touch, singing and dancing together, laughing with friends and relatives all contribute to happiness, mental, social and overall health and wellbeing.
    • Stress, uncertainty and fear lead to illness.
    • A COVID-19 Study of almost ten million found no evidence of asymptomatic spread, so there is no point in policing social distancing

    Sent to 51 Calderdale Councillors and to Calderdale Council on Monday 7 June 2021 as a one page word document
